Allen, C.E. (illus.)

Number 32 in the Young of Heart series, translated from the original French by Mary B. Richards. Illustrated with black & white images of the titular two cats by C. E. Allen. Laid into this copy are the original pen-and-ink drawings for all eight illustrations, and the cover, in addition to proofs for all illustrations except the cover.
